Introducing: Rathborne

Rathborne the band includes Luke Rathborne the guy, plus three other musically skilled yet somewhat mysterious guys. Video for lead track ‘Last Forgiven’ puts on a band front, but it’s clear Luke takes center stage. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing.

Being passionate about and working in music since he was 18 means that Luke Rathborne has released a few EPs to date. And his debut UK album ‘SOFT’ is released on February 16th, but don’t let the name fool you, it isn’t to say that soft won’t make you hard.

After listening to the album in its entirety, I can confidently say I don’t dislike one of them. Not even one. They’re all great. And that’s saying something when you listen to an entire album. From the slightly psychedelicness of ‘Soft’ to the more melodic ‘Last Forgiven’ it means there’s so much diversity to enjoy. Ain’t got no wrath for Rathborne’s debut UK album.
